christie have done a good job about being calm. that's one of the things dr. grossman was saying, why did this happen what's going on, he walked out in the rain and spoke to the press. >> rose: right. so hospitals today are equipped to respond to these kinds of emergencies. we talked about generators. what else do we need from our best hospitals when we face this kind of emergency? >> well, we are trained in columbia presbyterian, new york presbyterian at columbia, we changed the name. i've been there too long. we are the command center and go through drills what to do during emergencies. during 9/11 up i went, we were command center, everybody knew what to do. of course there was nothing to do up there because there were no survivors that went up there. we go through drills that involve moving people into special care centers. i'm sure that in this case, one of the big fears aside from the electricity running out in the hospital and then the babies not having enough oxygen or medicine was they're being moved to all these different hospitals. charlie in the now -- four by 400 where is
